Professor Brian McNaughton: STRATEGIES & TACTICS FOR BIOLOGICS DISCOVERY
My talk will describe recent development of biological drug leads. I will first describe how evolution of the first synthetic RNA recognition motif led to the discovery of a potent inhibitor of HIV proliferation. Next I will describe how questions about helix engineering and evolution led to potent inhibitors of HIV infection, with application in other diseases such as cancer. Finally, I will describe recent efforts in my lab to develop a practical continuous evolution platform.
